Shakshuka (Arabic: شكشوكة; Hebrew: שקשוקה) (also Shakshouka Chakchouka) is a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, onions, often spiced with cumin.
It is believed to have a Tunisian origin.
Shakshuka is a staple of Tunisian, Libyan, Algerian, and Moroccan cuisines traditionally served up in a cast iron pan with bread to mop up the sauce. It is also popular in Israel, where it was introduced by Tunisian Jews.
Shakshuka is Israel's hottest breakfast dish
this is the best way to prepare shakshuka, the spicy, warming, vegetable and egg dish that is a regular part of the Israeli diet and is usually served as a cooked breakfast or a light lunch.
The mix of tomato, garlic, herbs and spices, traditionally topped with sunny side up egg, is reputedly a fine hangover cure.
Israelis argue that only the version prepared over the years by their mothers or grandmothers can be described as truly authentic.
Regardless, most other Middle Eastern people will argue the same.

שַׁקְשׁוּקָה היא מאכל העשוי מביצה המבושלת על אש קטנה עם עגבניות, בצל ופלפלים.
בגרסה המסורתית והמקובלת, המוגשת במסעדות פועלים רבות, חלמון הביצה נותר בשלמותו בתבשיל, בדומה לביצת עין.
גרסה שונה היא זו בה החלמונים מעורבבים בחלבונים, כמו בביצה מקושקשת.
פירוש השם בשפה הברברית הוא "תערובת".
במרוקאית נקראת השקשוקה "צ'קצ'וקה", ובשפות אחרות "תוקתוקה".
לא ידוע כיצד השתרשה בישראל המילה שקשוקה.
מאכל זה הובא לישראל על ידי העולים החדשים מצפון אפריקה: ממרוקו, מתוניסיה, מאלג'יריה, מלוב ומחצי האי ערב.
בסיס המאכל קבוע: עגבניות, שמן זית וביצים.
המתכון בסרטון זה מראה איך לעשות שקשוקה בגרסא ביתית.

LOL...I have been making this for almost 50 yrs..My Nanny taught me...w a bit of a twist.....cut hot dogs in small pieces , fry in oil, thy will puff into little circles . add fresh sliced mushrooms, then add stewed tomatoes, THEN break the eggs on top, add lots of red seed pepper, black pepper, then fresh basil chopped on top. put the lid on, cook untill eggs R cooked but still creamy yokes..serve w fresh grated Italian cheese on top...thumbs up if U like my Nanny's Italian style version ! I sure do :)
I'm sure he's great - I would just soften the onions first and then add the garlic. If garlic cooks in the amount of time it takes for onions to cook, the garlic becomes burned. Burned garlic is very bitter. When he stirred the onions, much of the garlic appeared burnt.
Um, sorry but that doesn't look as good as it may be. And the process is too time consuming for early morning. It's just easier to make eggs, bacon, home fries topped with white country gravy and some french toast. If i cooked this we wouldn't eat until lunch time. But love your creativeness. I'm sure it's delish. Just doesn't look delish.
I would add: cheese, bacon, turkey bacon, ham, turkey, chicken, Fruit loops, Count chocula, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, a little bit of Guinness, some Dunkin Donut Coffee and maple donut, and some mash taters as a top layer then throw it in the oven, and you're done.
Couple tricks I do: add green bell pepper for color. Use canned tomatoes, with mexican spices for breakfast, Italian for dinner. And I always cover each egg with a piece of jalapeno pepper jack cheese.
Looks great up until you added the eggs! Yuk! Don't eat slop for breakfast, for breakfast I like my eggs fried or poached or scrambled, with fired ham or bacon or sausage links, a few pancakes w/maple syrup, or oatmeal with fruit on the side, orange juice and hot coffee. That's what I call breakfast! I don't eat slop for breakfast, only for lunch or dinner and I call it chili, Lasagna, or mac & cheese casserole, mushroom soup on the side, yadda yadda yadda, this shakshuka don't even look appetizing IMO, and certainly not for breakfast. Different strokes I guess.
Lived in Thailand for a spell, and breakfast there is awesome, sticky rice, bbq pork, steamed sweet corn with sweet soy sauce, mangoes, or samoe, lao coffee pure yummys from heaven!
Eggs poached in tomatoes and onions does NOT make a "Best Breakfast"! Add some sausage, potatoes o'brien and toasted English muffins with Cross and Blackwell orange marmalade; then you've got a "Best Breakfast"!
I've been doing this for 20 years using roast beef hash. You can you use corned beef hash too. Spread 3 or 4 cans evenly in a cast iron pan or an electric skillet and cook it over medium heat till it's beginning to brown on the bottom and then make divots with a rounded serving spoon in the hash and crack 8 or 10 eggs. Let them cook sunny side up or if you want cover them and cook them more well done and serve.
It's possible that you might have added too many eggs to your pepper breakfast...
p.s. on my side of the woods any doctor will tell you that those amounts of salt and pepper won't do anything good for your health
This a basic Shakshuka recipe, mine has to have hot red and green peppers, most importantly Feta Cheese is a must, what happened to the feta cheese? Either way, now matter how you cook it, it is nice to eat it morning or evening and skip the bacon will you!
Ok, so western style. Brown some bacon and sausages first (pack of bacon - like a pack of 8? Sausages, I use 4... Chop em up (sausages + bacon) to bite size first (use a sharp knife or scissors.!)) then carry on as per the video but 4 eggs rather than whatever and substitute tomatoes with cherry tomatoes - your going to need to quarter the cherry tomatoes first and when they soften, pulp them (plum, salad and canned tomatoes all taste the same). Add a single teaspoon of sugar after the tomatoes (takes the bitterness of the tomatoes out). Quarter the dish so each serving gets one egg. Man, it's a delight!
Totally nasty! Wtfudge? This is not breakfast! More like pasta sauce! Tomato sauce? This is not breakfast. What is breakfast? Bacons, sausage, cheese, potatoes, eggs, pancakes ect. Not veggies and eggs with tomato sauce! Naw!
